Based on a family story that Eugenie Fernandes told her own children, this revised version of the story has striking new illustrations. Kim Fernandes has not only mirrored the playfulness of Eugenie's spare, simple text but her buoyant Fimo illustrations create a sprightly sense of movement that truly makes the text come alive. The pictures also share the text's sense of humour - the mice live in a pale pink coffee pot and the little mouse's room includes a framed postage stamp, potted plant, and bright yellow bed made from a running shoe. This is a welcome addition to the literature for toddlers and preschoolers. Like other engaging books for the very young, ... Sleepy Little Mouse is certain to become a bedtime favourite.--Quill and Quire
The Claymation-like illustrations ... are truly fantastic.--Booklist
This wonderfully imaginative story is vividly illustrated with colourful three-dimensional images of Fimo modeling clay. The story and illustrations will capture and stir the imaginations of young readers.--Calgary Herald
